Discover the delights of New Orleans, past and present, on a narrated tour including highlights such as the French Quarter, an above-ground cemetery, one of the oldest parks in the country and more. Enjoy a scenic drive through the French Quarter, looking out for the French and Spanish influences in the original architecture, including the iconic ornamental ironwork. Head over the nearby Esplanade Avenue, a virtual millionaire’s row for wealthy Creole merchants in the 19th century, all nestled among gorgeous old oak trees. Also visit the St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, often called the “City of the Dead” because of its row upon row of above-ground tombs, all in various stages of repair—an unforgettable sight to see. New Orleans is renowned for these types of cemeteries, and the one you’ll stroll through has been featured in a number of films, including Live and Let Die and Double Jeopardy.  Then head through the old town of Carrollton and follow the streetcar route along historic St. Charles Avenue before concluding your tour.

• French Quarter: See historic buildings with intricate ironwork; along the way, learn about the neighborhood’s rich, 300-year history.
• St. Louis Cemetery No. 3: Known as the “City of the Dead,” take a stroll amid countless tombs in this above-ground cemetery dating back to the 1850s.
